Renault today announced a collaboration with Waze, the free, real time, crowdsourced traffic and navigation app, to bring better driving and navigation solutions to customers and drivers of Renault cars.
Waze will showcase a prototype demo of Waze for Android Auto exclusively with Renault at the world’s largest motor show, Paris Motor Show, which opens this week. This initiative with Waze underscores Renault’s objective to make drivers’ lives easier, by making the road safer, more enjoyable and by optimizing their journey.
“Renault is committed to making life on board easy, and we are delighted to work closely with Waze on connecting drivers in our cars with the free, popular navigation app in order to give customers more choice about what they want to use”, said Benoit Joly, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Connected Car & Mobility Services at Groupe Renault.
To celebrate the launch of the ZOE with new Z.E. 40 battery, starting October 1st, Renault-branded pins will appear within the Waze map of 13,000 French electric car charging locations, as well as branded search in-app to better locate these stations.
Jerome Marty, Ads Waze Country Manager France said: “ For Waze, the navigation app powered by the world’s largest community of drivers, our mission is to help drivers be more knowledgeable on the roads. Knowing that Renault is breaking into new territory by popularizing electric cars, it’s critical that we’re able to help our joint customers find charging stations as easily as a petrol station. We’re both committed to making driving a pleasant and easy experience and look forward to finding additional ways to work together like Waze for Android Auto.”
